Using conceptual methods popularized in music composition by John Cage, cartoonist/musician Todd Webb creates the experimental comic strip series Chance Operations, one of the first truly "indeterminate" comics. Chance Operations is an exercise in allowing formal constraints to decide the content and design of a sequential artwork - while Webb draws the comics, he does not "write" them, so to speak, instead using coin tossing and dice to determine the images and texts which make up the work. Experimental comics artist Warren Craghead describes Webb's book as "Conceptually focused and stunningly drawn, Chance Operations is a radical and beautiful experiment you can't stop looking at. After reading one sees connections, narratives and beauty everywhere - this work helps me see the world as comics and makes me want to draw." A must-have for any lover of conceptual art, poetry, or experimental comics.
